Senate Committee on Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) today released his mark of the Audit & Appeal Fairness, Integrity, and Reforms on Medicare Act of 2015. The bill will be marked up on Wednesday, June 3 at 10 a.m. ET. The chairman’s mark would make several changes to how Medicare contractors, including the Recovery Audit Contractors, review providers’ Medicare claims, as well as changes to the appeals process intended, in part, to address the significant backlog in appeals at the administrative law judge level. AHA members will receive a Special Bulletin with a more detailed summary.
